The movement forward in projection isn’t so much about projection mapping in the geometric sense as it is a chance to find a new materiality for digital imagery. In this work, the artists blend pixels and paint so that the different media can coexist.
In a beautifully-documented project, Rebecca Smith and Pete Barber show off their technique for mixing live mural painting with projection and – via stylus – “digital drawing.” Thanks, Bec, for sending this info CDM. The artists, based in Mansfield,
Nottinghamshire [UK], write:
S T Y L U S # 1 was created by Rebecca Smith & Pete Barber. It documents a very cold evening’s adventure, in which an image was hand sprayed onto a wall. The image was then projected onto using mapping techniques via Resolume Avenue. Further projections of live digital drawing and animation were created using Tagtool for iPad. All footage is raw, no post-production……More adventures to follow.

I spot a Livid Ohm in there, too.
Lots more work at their site; well worth a look.
